tonight u.s. forces on the order of george w. bush unleashed what later became known as shock and awe. a massive aerial assault that lit up the night sky in baghdad. we were told it would be a quick war. it was about finding and stopping weapons of mass destruction and we would be greeted as liberators. that did not turn out to be the case. now a decade later in our latest poll, a clear majority of americans say the iraq war was not worth it -- the cost in american lives or dollars. our chief foreign correspondent richard engel spent the better part of the last decade covering the war. he has our report tonight. >> reporter: today, baghdad looked like the place many american troops will remember. more than a dozen bombings, dozens dead. ten years after president bush launched shock and awe and toppled saddam hussein, the iraq war has started again. sunnis versus shiites. it's their fight now. but both sides blame the united states for blundering in, looking for weapons of mass destruction that weren't there, undoing iraq's delicate religious balance. hardly the stability desired after
talking to president bush 41 to ask him is he worried about the future of the republican party. he said look in 1992 after he lost, it took a while for republicans to get their footing but they did after two or three years. they come back in 1994, win big time. same thing in 2010. unshaky. clinton wins again in '96. come back and the republicans have the white house for eight years. there is something in this report that is interesting and bears a discussion on both sides, repeal of the mccain-feinstei-feingold law. it's intention of good but it hurts both to not spend money in the state. >> eric: bob, you must love that. the far right shooting to the center right and center right at the far right all weekend long. >> bob: i don't think priebus came up with off the top of his head. this is based on polling data. there is some truth to what some of the criticisms are. all you have to do is thereon cpac and you could not miss tuitions taking place in the conservative party. not the least of which is for years, national security has been the underpipping of the conservative republican -- u

is personal. for former criminal investigator jim bush and retired fbi special agent bob buchowski. >> 3,000 people were murdered. he was definitely part of that conspiracy. >> from the beginning wouldn't really give up anything. nothing about him fit. we knew that. we knew in our gut that there is something wrong. >> he arrived in the united states in july of 2000 from sud rabe. >> settled into the middle eastern community of patterson. >> paterson, new jersey, where 11 of the 19 hijackers passed through before the 9/11 attacks. >> paterson is really the launching pad for the plot. >> it is the only place we can actually connect. we can't put them all together at one time or in one meeting place because they blended in the community. >> it is here that he met up and lived with another key facilitator of the hijackers a jordannian who remains a secret of 9/11 as fox news first reported two years ago. he ran illegal driver's license schemes in new jersey, connecticut and virginia and had apartments in all three states. >> he was part of the criminal network in patterson. >> chiaza had no
on the start of the iraq war. the bush administration insisted saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. we were told to be prepared for the worst. and we were. we've been given these backpacks with a lot of protective gear. among other things, in case of the worst case scenario obviously we have a gas mask. we've all been trained how to use it just in case. small chance there is that kind of chemical or biological warfare. we reached for those backpacks after the war started. we had a big scare when an iraqi scud like missile landed in a kuwait city mall. about a mile or so from the hotel balcony where i was anchoring cnn's coverage. our chief medical correspondent dr. sanjay gupta immediately and very courageously left the hotel for the mall. wearing his protective gear including a gas mask. within minutes he was reporting from the scene. >> despite the fact that a missile actually did land very close there doesn't seem to be a sense of panic around here. >> during that attack we were all urged to go down into a sealed bunker. i decided to stay on the air and report on the dramatic de
. george bush doubled the debt and extent of the military greatly. we need to cut the military. we need to raise taxes to pay for that. i would like to point out to the congressman the united states constitution actually states that the congress has the power to raise taxes. the very first thing it gives for that purpose is to pay the .ebt for the united states i wish republicans would actually start upholding the constitution. host: you made your point. let's get a response. guest: you are right, we need to pay our debt. is too much? taxes is 50% of what one makes too much? i would suggest that it is. that is basically where we are right now for many individuals in this country. we believe that the way you get this economy rolling again so that jobs can be created and we we can get people back to work ,s -- get people back to work still pushing eight percent unemployment. we need to make certain that we can get the economy rolling. one of the ways to do that is the provost tax policy, bring taxes down so people can spend their money and invest and spend the way they see fit, not the wa
that an insurgency would rise. president bush had the courage to change that strategy in the face of a failure that we were facing. in less than two years, that success was turnaround turned around in the sense that it was 90% reduction in violence, which was very significant for achievement. at the end of the day, the major frustration we are dealing with it in 2009, the obama administration came in and changed the policy. they disengaged this and kept it at distance, and we found ourselves at the end of 2011. unlike what we have done in germany and japan and india where we kept things in place to help strengthen and secure government, and that did not take place. jon: president obama has often mentioned in speeches that was under his administration that the war in iraq ended. >> i think that he was saying it was the correct decision. what happened after the overthrow, obviously it didn't turn out the way that we expected. i think in part, it is due to a poor military strategy. but it was also an incorrect political strategy on our part. i think that we should have tried to put authority into
years ago tonight that then president george w. bush announced to the nation the war in iraq had begun. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations. to disarm iraq. to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger. >> shepard: a war that lasted more than 8 years, killed almost 4500 u.s. troops. wounded more than 30,000 others. and officials estimate more than 100,000 iraqis are dead. rick leventhal rode along with the u.s. marines who led the ground invasion. he is live in our new york newsroom in new york. >> 10 years ago tonight the marines we were with had already opened fire at the guard post. we had incoming mortars scream over our heads and watch over a berm as the aerial assault began on the hill.

will be elizabeth colbert-bush, her brother is nobody other than stephen colbert. and president barack obama left the united states and currently en route to israel for his first visit to that nation since he took office. it comes on a day when disturbing news was bracking in the region. now, there are unconfirmed reports that earlier today, a possible chemical weapons attack was carried out in northern syria. and at this hour, both the assad regime and the rebels are blaming one another for the deadly rocket blasts that killed the at least 31 people and that included 21 civilians. now, according to reuters photographer who was on the ground, people were seen suffocating in the streets and the air apparently smelled of chlorine. it's unclear who is behind the attack, the white house is expressing skepticism over the regime's claim that it was the rebels. >> at this time we have no evidence to substantiate that charge and we're skeptical deeply of a regime that might make that charge given that the regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the syrian people and the world. having said that we'
republicans a lot angrier than teams, even though he came into this job as a bush appointee from the republican side. so i think if bernanke is an eight-year chairman, it will be of his soleition, rather than obama saying -- his volition, rather than obama saying it's time for you to go and put in a democrat. >> rose: has he made decisions you disagreed with? >> yes, i disagreed very fundamentally with the lehman brothers decision. it wasn't the cause of the crisis, we had the crisis before, but it was a turning point and everything fell apart. >> rose: what's their answer to that question. >> the answer has changed a few times but the basic answer is we department have the legal means. there was no tarp. the was no dodd-frank. they now have the legal means to handle the next lehman, so to speak, differently. but his view was that they didn't have the legal means to do it. >> the problem with that answer is they dnt have the legal means to do some of the things they actually did do and when they really wanted to to do it they found the legal means so i think that answer from them
successor maduro saying the pentagon, the cia and two former bush administration officials are plotting to assassinate his opponent. his opponent in next month's presidential election. here's rafael romo. >> at a campaign stop in the south seas, nicolas maduro addresses farmers. at a cabinet meeting a military style green shirt while addressing the country on tv, but it's what venezuela's acting president's saying is what's making waves. he's claimed there's a conspiracy orchestrated in the united states to kill venezuela opposition candidate. the ultimate goal maduro says is destabilizing the country. two fierce critics of the venezuelan social government who worked for the u.s. state department under president and bush. he responded with an accusation of his own tweeting these charges are so far removed from reality they may as well be a smoke screen behind which the venezuela government is planning to eliminate capriles. >> the united states categorically rejects allegations of any u.s. government involvement in any plot to destabilize the venezuelan government or to harm anyone in v
, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is
an example. you remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and daschle, tom daschle and dick gephardt, they were the minority leaders. they didn't even have, they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house, they didn't have the senate, they didn't have the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to meet the press outside because they had a big, brand new lexus, and they had a rusty muffler. see, that's what he's going to get -- the rich guy, that is -- this is all you're getting, and basically they said there's nothing in it for you if you're middle class and poor. he's only doing this for the rich. well, we know that's not true, but most people bought it. in fact, to this day most people, i mean, most republicans i talk to, it's unbelievable. you know? i mean, forget about the truth, it's the perception of the truth. and, you know, it's amazing, i mean, you know, terms like gridlock, it came from them, you know? i mean, like they said the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality,
actually had interest payments that were over 3% of gdp under bush one and then they came way down. people said, oh, look at these scary numbers about rising interest payments, they, the scenario we're supposed to be afraid of is the things we go back to the way they were 20 years ago, which doesn't seem all that scary. >> let's look at that. we have a chart with precisely that. you see three lines. this is the net interest payments and this is a fairly modest, modest rate increases. and what you see here is nonentitlement spending. you see how they get, they come down. what i want to ask you, as a liberal, don't you worry that if entitlements continue to go up and nothing is done about it, what is going to happen is, forget about defense, but look at nondefense discretionary spending. this is education. this is, all the kinds of programs that you're passionate about that are naturally and necessarily almost going to get squeezed as entitlement spending becomes larger and larger. >> they're going to get squeezed, again, if we look beyond, if we look past and we look to the year 2025, 2030,
it will be as high as it was in 1991, 1992. we actually had interest payments over 3% of gdp under bush one and then came way down. so when people say look at the scary numbers about rising interest payments, the scenario we are supposed to be afraid of are the things going back to the way they were 20 years ago which doesn't seem all that scary. >> let's look at. that we have a chart with precisely that. this is the net interest payments and this is assuming fairly modest rate increases. what you see here is nonentitlement spending. you see how they come down. what i want to ask you, as a liberal, don't you worry that if entitlements continue to go up and nothing is done about it what is going to happen is forget about defense but look at nondefense discretionary spending. this is education, spending all of the programs that you are passionate about that will be squeezed as entitlement spending is larger and larger. >> they will be squeezed. if we look beyond, look at 2025, 2030, something has to give. we can't keep squeezing nondefense, ndd, nondefense discretionary. that is already pret
budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and w

. he was for the iraq war until he was against it, until bush became president. >> yeah. >> so as long as we have got a democrat in there, i think good people of syria can depend on carl levin to be with them. >> it's interesting he has appeared with senator mccain who is a very vocal advocate of more strength being thrown toward the rebels of syria including eluding to putting ground troops into syria and now levin and mccain combined. >> the drum beat is growing louder. this report of a chemical weapons attack seems to be something we should step back and let the investigators investigate it. >> we would have been there a long time but the past decade of war, 70,000 dead in syria. we would have gotten together with the international community. we would have figured out a way to stop the killing. >> some people would consider that a game-changer. >> yeah, 70,000? >> that's what i'm saying. you know, not so long ago, we were talking about 20,000 dead there. now up to 70,000 dead. we went in to bosnia and kosovo for a lot more than 70,000 dead. >> preiraq war and goes to show you how mu

, before the vote. saying, look, folks, there is no exit strategy here because the bush administration does not intend to leave. we do not belong as an occupying power in that part of the world. we are going to enable it ran, strengthen it ran, not take down -- enable iran, strgthen iran, not take down iran. i grew up in the military. i served in vietnam. i spent five years at the pentagon as a defense executive and as a marine. my son dropped out of college and fought during some of the harder fighting an infantry man. i was the assistant secretary of defense and secretary of the navy. i spent a great deal of my professional life thinking about these issues and trying to articulate what the proper role should be of the presidency of the military and of the congress. one of the things that we have seen, i think particularly with the advance of technology, the remote weapons systems, the increased use of special forces, and the libya example, which i write about in this piece, is that congress has not really had a voice even in the way that it diduring the vote on iraq when it comes to a lo
i learned working with george herbert walker bush is that the most important thing in the world is for people to trust america and to have a feeling that america will be there in dealing with the national security issues. on both counts, this president obama has lost. >>steve: it is curious, because if you're just watching -- if you saw the president with netanyahu yesterday, you would think they're getting along great. in the past, for all intents and purposes, it seemed like they hated each other. the fact that b.b. netanyahu used to go to school with mitt romney, that didn't help things. but there is a quote today that apparently a senior israeli official said there was -- quote -- "a tacit agreement apparently between both leaders, if not coordination, to engage in a very intense public display of affection." >>alisyn: good. fantastic. if president obama's visit to israel helps them smooth over the tensions they had in the past and forge some sort of friendship, fantastic. even if they're faking it, sometimes that works. >>brian: would you be talking to alisyn if she wasn't
will be available and called "a traveled first lady" with a foreword by former first lady laura bush. >> we must talk a little bit about their posting in st. petersburg and her incredible journey back to meet her husband. can you tell what is important about that story? >> their years in st. petersburg are difficult in some ways. st. petersburg is a hardship outpost. it's cold. it's forbidding, their aren't a lot of other women there. most of the diplomats' wives don't travel with their husbands when they travel to st. petersburg. they have a little girl, louisa catherine adams and the child dies after about a year. that really devastates her mother, louisa. it's very painful, and john quincy. he is also very much torn apart by this. the war of 1812 here has broken out. john quincy is sent to negotiate a treaty and he leaves louisa with her youngest son, charles francis, in st. petersburg and eventually when peace is resolved and he is sure that he'll either be returning home or be sent to london, he asks her to join him. so she makes this arduous and pearlous journey from st. petersburg in the
of the white house is supposed to be these days. a former deputy assistant under george w. bush and jewelry an advisor to senator frank lautenberg. >> the wooing has aside, and he went and glad-hand and met with paul ryan and now his number two comes out, brad, it's like business as usual, we can't get along and they're leaderless and they don't live up to their deal. what's going on? >> well, obviously, either biden didn't get the memo or doesn't like what the memo says from the president, but the charm offensive now turned offensive. and this is all geared to 2014. the president and joe biden feel now that if they can continue to paint the republicans as obstructionist, that that is their ticket to winning back the government and it's not the way that you get the government back. the way you get the government back if you're a democrat is to do our job. be competent. use good faith in dealing with republicans and get something done with the american people and that will get you elected, but not this type of attitude now where the president gives with one hand and takes away with the other
in taxes for workers are actually higher. why is that bush and mark what has texas done? >> i think we don't have the costs associated. we have a very moderate company corporate tax. we have a very affordable real estate. i think we make it relative. it is a big win for texas. we have done a good job of telling that story. you can almost double your money if you come from california to texas. cheryl: that will make april 15 a lot healthier and happier for many. governor perry launched this huge ad campaign in california. at the same time, he reached out on twitter to phil mickelson. texas is home to liberty and low taxes. we would love to have you over here. >> we do have about 320 days of good golf weather. i think it makes perfect sense. [ laughter ] >> it is pretty amazing. talk about return on investment. it is a pretty good roi. it is becoming, it is coming to a head here. there is a tipping point. enough is almost enough. cheryl: we would love to have governor perry on the show. craig casselberry. thank you. cheryl: the flipside. california democratic congressman will join us with wh
in the span of eight years from 44%, that's what george bush received, to just 27% for mitt romney. alex, why do you think that's happened, can the party reverse it? >> i think we lost our way. we for got i think that this country at some point everybody goes back and their family came here from somewhere. most americans. and we forgot that the new blood re-energizes this country. and i think part of that was the contribution that, well, we didn't have secure borders and at a time when the economy is cratering, all of a sudden it became a very dark process, we're eating our own tail. more jobs for immigrants may have meant less jobs for someone else. and the way you lead yourself out of that is, no, no, everyone has something to con tribute. let's get an immigration process that brings people who want to come here, who want to become americans, who want to contribute to this country not take from this country. and that's always been the republican message. fortunately, they allowed a few republican media consultants to stay. i'm happy about that. but our problems are bigger than just hispanic
, reagan, bush. is the party doing enough to support the rising star governors once they get past the endorsement process? >> that is the plan for 2013 and 2014. i know our state parties do a lot of work. the rga does. we have a different party, too. 15 or 20 years ago or maybe more there wasn't an nrcc. there wasn't 10, 20 different 527's.r pacs and we have a big group of organizations involved in anding republicans conservatives elected. my job is to put together not only the best infrastructure and data and mechanics but we have our primary system that needs to be looked at and i think overall messaging. for the most are there are lots of players out there that are doing a lot of this work. the rnc has to play a role. promoting governors. they're the innovators. they are balancing budgets. getting things done. they are leading the way. and we are going to be involved. but there is a lot of different groups that are involved in this same activity. >> how will you keep democrats from picking their preferred candidates byate eliminating stronger republican candidates? they cite ne
of president george w. bush. good morning to you. who wants to be peter cottontail here? brad, do you want to raise for your hand for that or is that better suted for bob? >> i will raise my hand. bill: what kind of a mess have they gotten themselves into? >> the president to say a event funded by almost entirely by corporate donation has to be canceled. don't forget, they went to every member of congress not only to themselves or families this is shot over the bow of congress if it is canceled it is your fault. the fact. matter this event is mostly underwritten by volunteers who donate their time and money. there is very little cost to the government. this is tradition that goes back decades upon decades. it is punishment to the people who line up to come to their kids to an event become part of this --. bill: but for now it is on schedule so members of congress can come in and members of the public can not so tours have been canceled. >> that's right. bill: bob, how do you see it? >> i want to thank you for inviting me to talk about the uplifting story. bill: you're welcome. >> because o
congress, including the deal on the bush tax cuts that were made at year end. $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next ten years. and all also agree that $is.8is- that $1.8 trillion was gutting expenses and a little more than $600 billion of this was revenues achieved through the year-end bush tax cut deal. so everwhelmingly what has been done thus far has been in spending cuts rather than new revenues. it is very important for us to know that. it is very important for folks to realize that democrats are willing to make are hard calls about spending. we've done it already. but the question before this body and the question before the house now is going forward, what do we do to achieve additional deficit reduction that's consistent with having a growing economy? and the approaches of the senate and the house on this could not be more different. the house approach basically says that all additional deficit reduction should be achieved by cutting spending. by looking at one side of the balance sheet. i do not know of a business, i do not know of a family, i do not know of other u
